Went to this place after reading a previous review and i wasn't disappointed. Quite a homey place with lot of little nuances that really made the environment enjoyable. It was a little smokey for my taste, but that is Berlin, i guess.

service was fast and courteous. They had a decent selection of beers. Quite a few obligatory pilsners, but they also had a bier of the month which was a kellerbier this time. They also had Guinness on tap which my wife had and said was good. They also have Killkeney and Schneider Weiss on tap.

Didn't try the food but prices seemed good.

Dicke Wirtin is more or less, German slang for 'Thick set Landlady'. A picture of the formidable former lady in question can be found in the rear room, near the corridor towards the toilets. A painting on the rear bar wall and all the menu's etc, have a unflatering image of her also.

Savigny Platz is a lovelly square on Kant Strasse, with its own S Bahn station. Dicke Wirtin is one of many bars and eating places in and around this green platz in Charlottenburg. Not many tourist, well not noisey young ones anyway, just normal people in this area.

The front bar is very British in style, big stained wood bar on the right, with bar stools, a much larger back room, with a non-smoking sideroom, mostly for food.

Draught beers include Schinder Weiss Dunkel, Engel Dunkel, Flensburger Pils, Berliner Kindl Pils, Veltins Pils, Guiness and Kilkenny, although this is not in any way an Irish bar. My party had a selection, all were in good order, as was the food. Sadly they no longer do the huge 'Charlottenbuger' which was a monster burger with chips, didn't ask why.

I found this place in 2005 and revisited last week (Jan 2007), how I wish I knew of its exisistance when I lived in the city during the late 1990's.

Big screen TV in the rear/back room, only sport and then only if asked for. Very friendly staff, helpful and happy to speak English if your German is poor, although they are also happy to wait and let you speak pigeon German if you wish. A very good bar, would be impressive no matter where in the world it was.
